Raise the Jolly Roger, GOP

The inimitable Peggy Noonan calls for Republicans to get ahead of Obama on "main street" issues in her latest Wall Street Journal column. Noonan proposes ending too big to fail, rapidly implementing immigration reform, ending the carried interest deduction, and a moderate nod at gun control. Would these give the GOP a fighting shot during what look like dark times for conservatives? I'm not so certain, but any of her columns is worth your time.
